from the star of the obama family, michelle obama. you know, this is just like a relay and you start off with the fastest person. so i'm going to be at home and i'm going to be watching it with our girls. and i am going to try not to let them see their daddy cry. because when michelle starts talking, i start getting all misty. >> let's go to our white house correspondent brianna keilar. she's downstairs here in the convention at the time warner cable. what else do we expect the first lady to say tonight? >> wolf, we're really expecting her to stay somewhat on message when it comes to what president obama's campaign is all about. that he's making decisions putting the middle class first. but she's going to be doing it. a source close to her tells me from a very personal place. she'll obviously talk about herself is the person who knows him best, around him at very pivotal moments and she'll talk about how she's seen him make difficult decisions, whether it be health care reform or over the auto bailout. and that she has seen him make these decisions putting the middle class first. tha
to be done. >> tonight we heard from the star of the obama family. first lady michelle obama. this hour we will be showing you the big moments, the first speeches and we begin with the first lady. take a look. serving as your first lady is an honor and a privilege. but back when we first came together four years ago, i still had concerns about this journey we'd begun. while i believed deeply in my husband's vision for this country and i was certain he would make an extraordinary president, like any mother, i was worried about what it would mean for our girls if he got that chance. how would we keep them grounded under the glare of the national spotlight. how would they feel being uprooted from their school, their friends and the only home they had ever known. our life before moving to washington was filled with simple joys. saturdays at soccer games, sundays at grand's house and a date night was either dinner or a movie because as an exhausted mom, i couldn't stay awake for both. and the truth is, i loved the life we had built for our girls. and i deeply love the man i had built that life
to what people are expecting from the first lady michelle obama's speech tonight. >> look, that is part of the reason for the excitement because first of all, have you these people and the configuration as you can see behind me, i'm above the podium which is a really great vantage point. as you can see, people are -- very, few people, very few delegations are actually on the floor. it is a bowl. they are up and around on the sides. that is, i think, making it sound a lot larger, louder, than it actually might be. it is very loud. they are very excited and they are not all here yet. there are a lot of empty seats. typically people are at dinner now but will be here in time for the keynote address. people are excited to hear castro the keynote speaker, but principally this is michelle obama's night. she is already throughout the campaign. they sent sought an e-mail a half hour ago asking people to text and send in $3 donations in advance of her speech. she told ryan seacrest today on his radio show she had not watched ann romney's speech and came here briefly to look at the stage and look
president doesn't change who you are. no, it reveals who you are. >> michelle obama gets personal. the first laidy on her husband' value and vision and really what was the speech of her life. >> a victory rally in canada. a politician rushed from the podium after deadly gunshots rang out. good morning ining to you. welcome to early start. i'm zoraida zam blsambolin in n york. >> i'm john berman live from the democratic national convention. this morning everyone is talking about the misses. he may be the commander in chief. but she is the mom in chief. and it's no longer clear which one of them can best sell a speech. because michelle obama was the highlight of the first night of the democratic convention with a passionate, personal appeal for her husband's re-election. to hear the first lady tell it, president obama is just like the rest of us. tonight, the big speech comes from former president bill clinton. so there is a lot to talk about. joining me now is cnn's dana bash. who's been killing it all week with us here on "early start" in the mornings. thanks for being with us again. what w
it the walkthrough. they get to practice a bit on the the teleprompter. you see that to the side of michelle obama. reading off of a teleprompter is an unnatural act. it's not easy to do. you have to move your head back and forth and keep following along and engage the audience at the same time, which is not easy, and engage the television audience. she's getting applause right now. >> and she's practicing a little bit. as important as the reception she gets for the 20,000 or 25,000 delegates and guests inside the arena, what's sho much more important is the reception sh gets from the 40 or 50 million viewers out there, many of them still undecided. >> and i think the bar is set pretty high for her. she now has this many years later quite a bit of public speaking experience. she tends to do pretty well, i think you'll agree, when she's speaking at events. large events, small events. thinks going to be one of the speeches most anticipated throughout this entire week. >> and ann romney gave a good speech in tampa. >> both will reach out to the all important women voters. president obama has a dozen
, it will be in tomorrow. i read it. you quote michelle obama at t democratic convention in her speech, she said being president reveals who you are. you say so do campaigns and you're not happy with what's being revealed about mitt romney? how so? what do you think this tape reveals? >> well, there's a lot of us who have been waiting for a long time for some seminal moment for mitt romney to reveal his character and unfortunately, i'm afraid that this tape is exactly what that does but not in the way we had hoped for. it's getting harder to support him, getting harder to defend him. you know, i talked a lot about how i remember in september 2000, things were difficult, the dark days of september, and easy to bounce back, but when you start casting off half the country as victims, that causes a lot of pause for independents and people like me who cross the line in the mid '90s to join the republican party because of ideas like compassionate conservatism. i don't hear any of that from mitt romney. i'm trying to figure out what the broader vision and narrative is that takes care of the least among us. w
